TAVARES, Fla. -- Sept. 25, 2003 -- The unofficial American Le Mans Series GT team champion will compete at the Grand Prix Americas on the streets of downtown Miami on Saturday, Sept. 27. Alex Job Racing will contest the No. 23 McKenna Porsche/mail2web.com™ Porsche 911 GT3 RS piloted by Lucas Luhr of Monaco and Sascha Maassen of Raeren, Belgium as well as the No. 24 Porsche driven by Jorg Bergmeister of Langenfeld, Germany and Timo Bernhard of Miesau, Germany.

The 1.3-mile temporary street circuit is a good challenge for the ALMS GT champion team. Alex Job Racing has won all of the ALMS temporary street circuits in which the team has entered. The four street circuit victories occurred in 2002 and 2003 in Trois-Rivieres and in 2002 at Miami and Washington D.C.

"The street circuit in Miami is good fun, it is tight and make for interesting racing. I like the atmosphere of being downtown in Miami right on the streets. Because the track has changed configuration this year, it will take a few laps to learn the new turns. I like a challenge and I remember the circuit from last year being challenging. I enjoyed the race last year and hope we can do well this weekend," Jorg Bergmeister No. 24 Porsche GT3 RS.

"Racing in the streets of Miami makes for a unique event. Miami has such an international flair, unlike any other venue we race at. Street races are very challenging in many ways, especially with the walls that define the track. One mistake can be very costly," team owner Alex Job said.

Based in Tavares, Fla., Alex Job Racing serves as a race prep, chassis-building and tuning facility. On a day-to-day basis, team owners Alex and Holly Job are involved in the growth and administrative functions of the team and business.
